Two Lost Musical Treasures are Rediscovered


Conductor Gerald Wolfe joins us to talk about the two rarely-performed choral masterpieces that will be on the program of the next Ithaca Community Chorus and Chamber Singers concert on May 12th at St. Paul’s United Methodist Church. Anton Reicha was best known for his many works for wind instruments and Charles Gounod for his operas ‘Romeo et Juliette’ and ‘Faust’, but both wrote a considerable amount of sacred music. This concert features Reicha’s Requiem and Gounod’s Messe Chorale.
